Blue Mountains Music Festival Announces 2017 Lineup

Blue Mountains Music Festival is set to return to Katoomba in 2017, and organisers have just revealed a massive lineup full of plenty of local and international talent.

Leading the lineup are Aussie music veterans Paul Kelly and Charlie Owens, who’ve toured throughout 2016 off the back of their new record Death’s Dateless Night.

Joining them are Aussie folk rockers The Waifs, experienced hip hop performer and Elefant Traks leader Urthboy, as well as the likes of Scotland’s Eddi Reader, Folk Uke of the USA, tropical six piece outfit Bustamento and heaps more.

2017’s Blue Mountains Music Festival will have a distinctly international flavour, with artists from a huge variety of countries including Ireland, Scotland, Canada, The Netherlands, USA, India, Japan and even Ethiopia set to feature.

There’ll be three massive days of music across seven stages, plus roving performers, instrumental circles and more.
